    Hello from smalltown Southern Georgia

    Hello, I'm new to large format. I took a photography class in high school many years ago and got hooked. Over the years, life and a growing family got in the way and my camera collected dust. So a few years ago I purchased a DSLR and sold my film gear. Later, I went to purchase an additional lens for my DSLR and the owner of the shop had a Bronica ETRS camera and I thought "wouldn't this be cool to use?" so I bought it and was hooked again. More medium format cameras later (TLR, Folders) I came across a Mamiya press camera bundled with an ancient Speed Graphic and Calumet monorail.

    Now I was hooked on large format! I used the Speed Graphic but he monorail was too burdensome, for me, to lug around so I consigned that camera and acquired Horseman HF which I foresee getting a lot of use. I shoot mostly outdoors with my other cameras and this package will be used in the same way.

    I look forward to perusing the forums here and reading up on various topics.

    Nice start. You should be hitting 8x10 in about a year & half.

    Yep! I started with 35mm and then digital, and medium format and then 4x5. I have an 8x10 now but I doubt I'll go larger. Still, 11x14 contact prints are pretty nice!

    Looks like Kent's cat picked up some of that too. Anyway, nice rig. Welcome to LF forum. Gees, haven't been to your neck of the woods (Okefenokee) and Folkston since....wow, that was 42yrs ago....when I ripped from Vegas to the Keys, NJ, PA and back....only 9100 miles in 30 days.

    Alan, I'm originally from St. Louis. Is there a photo store up there that has any interesting film stuff besides the little bit at Creve Coeur Camera. I like Schiller's for preowned digital equipment. I'm usually up there a couple times a year.

    Unfortunately, no.

    I live in Brentwood so Schiller's is 5 minutes away from me. They are like Creve Coeur Camera and only have a little bit of new darkroom stuff (8x10 paper, chemicals, trays, tongs, etc.) and a bit of used gear. They had some used Hasselblads but I didn't see any the last time I was there. Just a few used 35mm cameras and used dslr's. They do sell 35mm and medium format roll film but no sheet film. No real film camera stores any longer in St. Louis. I really miss City Photo Stockhouse down by the Brewery and their large stock of used film gear!

    There is a camera show put on at a local hotel a couple times a year. I went once and have been trying to go back. The last one just happened but I had caught a virus after I picked my grandson up from school. He caught it too. Mostly 35mm cameras for sale with a little medium format gear. One seller had a few large format lenses but nothing interesting. I did get a good deal on a Leitz Tiltall tripod.
